TUB COUNTY ELECTION.
The County Hill is now n lnw,
nnd by Kxecutivc proclamation, ap
pearing in this issue, the first step
toward putting county government
into oncrntiou will he efTecled on
June 20th. It now devolves upon
the KcpnbMcnn party to put into
the field a ticket for county officers
which will satisfy nil elements and
insure an honest and faithful ad
ministration of the law. Let the
sober, sensible, law-abiding voter
disprove the assertion of the calam
ity howler that county government
means increased taxation and ti
career of political corruption by
electing to office only men who can
be relied upon to give a clean, business-like
THE STRUGGLE FOR LIBERTY.
Despotism has sounded its own
death knell in Russia, and the
crowiiiE demand for a free form of
government in Russia will sweep
from the land like a tidal wave the
last vestagc of bureaucracy, which
has been the undoing of the Roman-
offs. Czar Nicholas is beset with
conflicting doubts and fears as to
tin srniritv of his own throne, for
he finds the growing demands for a
republican form of government
more persistent every day. Dr.
Russet'." able and instructive series
of articles on this subject reviewing
the causes which have led up to
the present condition of affairs, is
well worth perusal by Tkwunk
What is needed among the bana
na farmers, as well as citizens of
Hllo, is a clearer conception of what
community of interest means. The
idea of going it alone is out of date
nnd works in an injury to the indi
vidual when the latter is forced to
compete with a trust. Let us or
ganize our banana as well as our
other industries, to our mutual pro
fit and pleasure.
IN his veto of the bill to provide
a Hilo High School, Governor
Carter forgets the fact thnt the
general enabling acts empowering
territorial officials to make improve
ments outside of Honolulu do not
npply ipse Jacto, i litis do our
statute books become encumbered
with much needed legislation other

To the Legislature of the Territory of
Herewith, I return Senate Hill No. 23,
entitled "An Act to provide for a High
School in Hilo, Island mid Territory of
Hawaii, under the Department of Public
Instruction ofthe Territory," which I am
unable to approve.
This bill falls within thnt clnss of abso
lutely unnecessary legislation with which
our statute books nre often encumbered.
Section 207 of the Revised Laws covers
all the essential requirements of this bill.
If it is the desire of the Legislature to
have the Territory enct 11 High School
in Hilo, all that is necessary to be done
is to show the Department of Public In
strectiou the necessity for it and provide
the fiindK in the appropriation bill.

sentiments of the club Hint 110 new lenses

61,572 neres of Kotcrutncnt land, n con

I.ntely, according to the "Knu Weekly,"
the malinger of the company has been
circulating n petition addressed to Com
missioner of Public Lauds, Jns. W. Pratt,
asking that the Commissioner consider
f.ivor.ibly the application of the plnntn-
Hon for a renewal of its lenses to the
laud in question. All employees resid
ing between Wnioliiuti nnd Hilca were
compelled to attnch their signatures to
the paper, under penalty of summary
dismissal, says the Knu organ.
Commenting on the affair, the Knu
publication says: "Quite n correspond
ence Is being carried on by the substan
tial members of our community regard
ing the homesteads. Had it not been for
the employees' petition, no one would
have made any immediate move nnd the
whole thing might have been forgotten,
But the lands were so well advertised by
it that others began to inquire mid found
the laud just what they wnnted. They
have formal n strong settlement associa
tion mid put in their claims and we notice
that some ofthe petition signers after
wards joined the society."
A correspondent signing himself an
"American Citizen," addresses a commu
nication to the paper, in which he snys:
"There nre between twenty mid thirty
of the good, mid substantial citizens of
tlic district ot hou who ilesire to Home
stead, a portion nt lenst, of these lnnds.
and who would mnke first clnss improve

instead of to those who would make Ha

new the leases mentioned but if it is true
that the "powers that lie" arc honest in
tilt ir loud talk about building up the
country then we insist thnt the land that
is valuable for small owners be first of
fered for settlement. Not one ncre of
good Government land in this district
exists thul is not covered by lease to plan
tations and what land has been thrown
open to homesteaders is of so poor quali
ty that no one could exist from its returns
alone, and so far from any market thnt
if anything could'be grown it would be
of no value. Open up the picductive
lauds tributary to the plantations and fill
the country up with well to do farmers
and the labor question would be settled
to a great extent. Let American citizens
have the same chances that are now
given to Japs and others not nl our land
Hiid there will not be the slightest diffi
culty about obtaining settlers. You can
then say with the trrth that Hawaii is
profitable to the small farmer."
The I'.aster services in all the churches
last Sunday proved of special interest,
and large congregations greeted the
pistors in the different houses of worship
ofthe city. In most pulpits the pastors
delivered able discourses, besides having
an elaborate program of blaster music.
The Catholic Church was ornately deco
rated with flowers mid palms and the
anthems were sung with pleasing effect.
! The Protestant Portuguese Church was
similar decorated. Under the supervision
of Miss Lyman mid Miss Harriet Hitch
cock, the auditorium of the First Foreign
Church wns transformed in u veritable
conservatory. Calla lilies, mnarailis and
bago palms were profusely used. The
